Heartbreak Continues, Utility Painting and Maternity Conference!

I had a little bit of a regression in regards to my heartbreak, finished some utility room projects and attended a conference!

Honestly, I feel like this last week has been a huge backwards step in life. I had a wonderful time in Liverpool but being alone again was a little bit of a shock to the system and it took it's toll on me. I cried the entire way home, even having to stop on the way back. I'm in a much better place now so I'm trying not to focus on it too much right now. 

Later in the week, I had a day of university, as well as attended a midwifery conference. The conference was really good in parts but this year defintely did focus more on a student perspective and Leicester Hospital midwives which was unusual. There's defintely some things I want to look into more following the discussions. 

I also spent a couple of days finishing the utility room. Whilst it's not perfect, it is as good as it's getting and I really am very happy with it. I stuck on the last of the skirting board, sealed all over the top and the bottom, filling in the gaps, painted and cleaned. Here's the side I'm most proud of, alongside a before and after showing the difference in one area. 

I also gave a little tour of some of the baby toys I have in the house and finally had Severn Trent come out to "investigate the leak". Luckily it turned out not to be a leak, but instead a communal meter which serves 5 houses. Thankfully they corrected my bill immediately, charging me less than 25% of the bill which was a huge relief. I had another service come a week later to try and fit a single meter but unfortunately due to the location of my stop tap, that's not possible so now I'm just waiting on them to decide the going rate for single occupancy now.
